What’s The Deal With Rihanna’s Weird ANTIdiaRY Project?

After three and a half long-ass years, Rihanna is supposedly finally ready to bless us with a new album, ANTI, which is coming to Tidal users on Black Friday — that’s in, like, four days, guys — and the rest of us on December 4th. Rihanna can be a total tease, but I’m pretty sure this info is legit, because look at what she tweeted:

It’s coming! But first, we must figure out why Rihanna is skulking through the halls of an abandoned house with evil demon children.

Like the cave drawings of Lascaux, these drawings – plus the work of “the key holder” – serve to only further complicate the mystery.

Is Rihanna trapped in a prison of her own making? Is this house a metaphor for her mind? Are these devil children her ego and her id?

What mysteries do you know, children? Why are you in this house? Why is Rihanna in this house? It’s too well-lit for a horror movie, but not clean enough to be some sort of lifestyle rom-com a la “It’s Complicated,” so I’m guessing this isn’t buddy comedy in which Rihanna has to help those two children find their mommy.

Hey, what’s behind that door, guys?

Oh. I see.

If you want to see if you can beat Rihanna at her own game — figuring out what her album is about and when it will actually be released, I guess? — go to ANTIdiaRY on your phone and try and figure it out for yourself.
